An architect-created apartment in the midst of the Highlands, this family cottage brings country delight and modern elegance together for a unique holiday.

This modern architect-designed cottage forms the perfect base for couples and small families looking for a rural retreat in the Highlands. Take a step back from daily life and experience total peace and tranquillity in a remote setting. The land to the north of the property is unpopulated as far as the west coast, providing unrivalled scenery and exciting deer-watching opportunities. If you run out of wine or snacks, you won’t have to travel far as the wonderful town of Alness is located just 4 miles from your doorstep. Here you will find supermarkets, independent shops and friendly pubs.

The property itself offers a pleasant surprise for those looking for something unique. This self-catering cottage is set amidst the stunning rugged countryside yet the interior has a distinct modern feel. As you enter the cottage you will be welcomed by not only a welcome basket but also a bright and airy space that boasts fantastic countryside views from many of the rooms.

Visualise cream walls and sofas with natural wood elements and you may get an idea of what’s in store. Despite the clean and contemporary style, the open-plan lounge is a homely space with wood burner and flatscreen TV, perfect for cosy evenings during the colder months. The kitchen/diner forms part of this space, offering modern appliances with a table and chairs. There is a double room on the ground floor which can sleep up to two guests.

Outside, there are several large patios surrounding the house on two sides; this is accessible from the lounge, bedroom and dining area. There is plenty of furniture here, providing the perfect spot for soaking up the sunshine in this green and sunny part of the northern Highlands.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This modern cottage is located in an area with ample opportunities for exploration. This area of Scotland is famous for fishing but offers far more. The land on the north side of the house is unpopulated all the way to the west coast but the pretty local town of Alness is only 4 miles away with two supermarkets, shops, a post office and banks. The city of Inverness is located approximately 27 miles from the cottage and easy to reach via the A9. This city is regarded as the ‘capital of the highlands' and has a wealth of attractions to explore including Inverness Castle and Abertarff House - Inverness' oldest building dating from 1592. Loch Ness is a further 30 miles from Inverness and an absolute must-visit for anyone exploring the Highlands. Question is... will you see the famous Nessie?

 

Beautiful sandy beaches are simply waiting to be discovered at Dornoch which is around 21 miles from the cottage and around Golpsie which is a little further afield (29 miles). There are beautiful spots for wildlife watching too along the shores of Cromarty Firth (23 miles). Tain is approximately 17 miles from the cottage and provides guests with an abundance of activities. This royal burgh and parish is steeped in dramatic history and boasts some pretty impressive architecture and a popular links golf course. Here you will also find ample shopping opportunities.

 

Whisky lovers can visit the nearby Dalmore Distillery, around 5 miles from the cottage for a true taste of Scotland. The Glenmorangie Distillery is also well worth a visit. This is approximately 16 miles from the cottage and it's open all year round for tours and tastings.

New owners of Tollie cottage, Paul and co couldn't have made us feel anymore welcome. Attention to detail within the property was second to none, from the excellent welcome basket to even spare toothbrushes in the bathroom. The property came fully kitted out and we were left needing nothing. The peaceful location 5 miles from Alness was the perfectRead more setting for a relaxing break away. Cosy interior, with refined features such as a wood burner and induction hob. A real home from home. Hide

This was our second visit to this property. It was again a very pleasant experience. The cottage is well-equipped and situated in a beautiful location. The hosts could not be more helpful. A good kitchen is essential for staying self -catering, and Tollie cottage has such a kitchen. If you like fly fishing, as we do, then you are ideally placed forRead more fishing the river Alness, some local lochs, or as we did, going up to Dornoch to fish some excellent hill lochs up there. Thoroughly recommend this property ! Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
